    MicroSD card

    The PD985 has a MicroSD card slot, which can be used to store critical communications. The card slot is located below the installed battery of the radio.

    The recorded data can be managed by using the DMR Recording Manager.

    MicroSD cards with a capacity of up to 32 gigabytes are supported, which means that up to 576 hours of voice communication can be stored.

    Single-frequency repeater mode

    The repeater mode of the PD985 increases the range of other radios by receiving voice and data communication in DMO mode on the first timeslot, and transmitting these information on the second timeslot using the same frequency at the same time.

    The PD985 DMR handheld radio is thus ideally suited for use in areas with limited radio coverage.

    Bluetooth® 4.0

    Supporting Bluetooth® 4.0, the PD985 is ready for wireless audio accessories. Besides easy data exchange, the convenient programming via Bluetooth® is also possible.

    Full-duplex calls

    The PD985 allows full-duplex calls to other PD985 radios, phones and mobile phones, where both parties can talk and listen at the same time.

    Real-time clock

    The integrated real-time clock allows users to check the exact time of received messages and calls.

    Smart battery

    The PD985 has the new smart battery feature on board, which increases user-friendliness and battery life. Battery status, battery life and the remaining charging time can be checked using the smart battery charger.

    Degree of protection: IP68

    The dust and moisture protection according to IP68 ensures the operation of the radio even in harsh working environments and equips the PD985 for every application.

    Improved sensitivity and frequency stability

    Compared to the PD785, the PD985 has a vastly improved performance. Its advanced technology increases both range and reliability.

    Improved voice quality

    The speaker with an output power of 3 watts and a new method for suppression of ambient noise ensures crystal-clear voice communication.
